Hello! My name is Alan Chen. At the time of writing, I'm 16 years old, though since this exact text must be kept static indefinitely for posterity, you viewers from the future can subtract "today's" date (8/23/18) from the current one to find my age. I was born in Seattle, WA, but seeing as how I'm typing this from the middle of Worcester, MA, you could probably infer that I move around a lot. I've been to Boston, New York, New Jersey, Wisconsin, Delaware, and Tennessee. (The latter few, however, are just what I've heard from my parents about my toddlerhood.) Though I've attended several (6!) schools in the past, I'm currently studying at the Massachusetts Academy of Math and Science, which -- and this may be quite unintuitive -- is a magnet school that specializes in math and science. Owing, perhaps, to the influence of both my biologist parents, I'm interested in neuroscience, and all the chemical mechanisms that make proverbial clock cells tick. Last summer, I took an introductory neuroscience course at Harvard, and I work at my dad's lab in my free time to perform all kinds of experiments.
